Yorkshire - World class riding on my doorstep

Hopefully the success of the Grand Depart last year and this weekends Tour de Yorkshire have begun to put this great county on the cycling map. Although I will always love the challenge of the great alpine passes, Yorkshire can still deliver stunning rides, leg destroying climbs, in an incredible landscape.

Below are some photos from recent rides.

 Rolling down Kingsdale 

 Dropping in to Dentdale, very steep with inconveniently placed gates!

 The cobbles of Dent

One of the many viaducts on the Settle - Carlisle line

 Pen Y Ghent

 Fleet Moss, the highest road in Yorkshire

 A mountain bike decent towards Ribblehead

Fewston and Swinsty Reservoirs (secret spy base in the background!)
